Danny Ainge: King of the news tease

With the 2014-15 NBA regular season in the books, Danny Ainge is giving the people what they want: Lots of news teases to keep Celtics Nation on it's toes! Ainge could see Hump back on C's next season, but not at $12M. Although, "He has the chance to hit the jackpot again on a sign-and-trade."— Ben Rohrbach (@brohrbach) April 17, 2014 I don't know if there...

Rondo trade talks were serious before deadline, Ainge says nobody is safe this offseason

Nothing new in Celtics nation. Rondo almost traded? Danny Ainge putting the team on notice that nobody is safe. Ainge in some ways is brutally honest, I guess that's the best way to think about it. But their is a certain coldness to it all. I guess I rather hear him say that nobody is safe, compared to being lied to. I'd rather hear Ainge say that Rondo is his guy. But Ainge...

(Video) Danny Ainge talks about duplicating 2007 all over again

Doing what Danny did in 2007 isn't easy. You need a little help from your friends. It's a shame Kevin is coaching right now. Danny Ainge has an opportunity to duplicate some of the magic from 2007. But it's going to take some luck, and some long hours from Ainge. The lottery will be the first domino to fall. This summer could be setup on where the Celtics pick in the...

Celtics Morning Joe: Where Ainge has the assets for "Fireworks"

I think all of us would love to see Boston back in title contention next season. I think most of us assume that Ainge will retool the Celtics this summer, and with that putting them back into the fold in the Eastern Conference.
